St Helena Catholic Church (Christian / Catholic )

St. Helena Catholic Church is located in the northeastern corner of San Antonio. The parish was founded in 1974. From the beginning, the people of St. Helena Parish have chosen to be generous with their time, talent and treasure. They have been active and involved in all aspects of parish life. They chose the motto "People Helping People" as an apt description of the spirit of St. Helena's parishioners.

Pierced Heart Ministry’s purpose is to bring people together who have loved ones suffering from addiction. Sharing strategies for coping with the addicted one's behavior, your concerns, prayers, tears, and hopes in a safe, loving, confidential, Christ-centered setting.

An open gathering, where people can come and share their feeling and frustrations. A safe non-judgmental environment to express their fears, worries and their concerns. An accepting and loving place to know they are not alone in their struggles with their loved ones dealing with addiction.

The Pierced Heart Ministry demonstrates, through prayer, listening, and caring for one another, that they are not alone on this journey. Christ is always with them. God’s love will be revealed to them as healing takes place. Create bonds with one another through prayer and sharing.
